'How to Keep your Pepsi Tasty' and Other Cool Tips

The year is 1893. Caleb Bradham perfects his formula for the greatest beverage of all time. The world will soon know the cool, refreshing, sparkling taste of sweet, sweet Pepsi. The mild burn after the first sip, the sensation of the ice-cold beverage making it’s way down your throat.

At least, that’s what I hear. I know nothing of bubbles or sweetness because I’ve always had fuckin’ ice in my drink! Water ice! Do you know what water does to the lifeblood that is Pepsi? Hint: It’s not Pepsi anymore.

Well, that was yesterday. My friends, we can now rejoice, for we will no longer feel our souls crushing under the realization that we have once again unintentionally watered our delicious drinks down. Read on.

Okay, so normally, most of us cool our drinks by putting ice into the glass with the drink. With me so far? Okay, so we use ice in the drink and that ice is just frozen water, which is how the Pepsi gets watered down. The drink is cold, but still warmer than the ice, so the ice melts and ruins the drink.

So, what I’m thinking, right, is this; don’t fill the ice cube tray with water. Fill it with Pepsi. Bang. Enjoy a lifetime of tasty, cold, and refreshing Pepsi on me.

Bonus: While filling and transporting an ice cube tray can result in bullshit like water all over your floor, Pepsi makes no such mess. Keep the tray in the freezer and pour straight from the can.
